Handbook of Asian American Psychology

Edited by:

November 1999 | 600 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
With the landmark publication of the Handbook of Asian American Psychology, professionals, students, and researchers now have a handy reference on topics that are germane to the understanding of Asian Americans. In recent years, the Asian American population has seen an explosion not only in size but also in diversity. As a result, the research and literature has reflected this explosion with a mass of new material presented in various journals on different Asian American subgroups. However, much of these research articles focus too narrowly on one subgroup, on disparate topics, and are published in varied disciplinary journals. Until now, there hasnÆt been a single-volume resource that integrates descriptions and evaluations of current research on all ethnic subgroups of Asian Americans. The Handbook of Asian American Psychology stands alone as the most comprehensive handbook on Asian Americans. A select group of prominent scholars and clinicians focus on a wide range of topics, including: + Racism + Family violence + Addictive behaviors + Interracial marriage + Academic achievement and performance + Interpersonal relations + Career development + Mental health services and treatment This bold new handbook provides insights into the diverse and varied nature of Asian American cultures and communication and makes a distinguished contribution to the body of knowledge on Asian Americans. It will be highly valued by professionals, students, and academics in ethnic studies, psychology, clinical and counseling psychology, social welfare, developmental psychology, gender studies, family studies, nursing, gerontology, research methods, and interpersonal communication.
